Jannick Schou and Mads Fors

.contemporary offers a platform where artists (audio and visual alike) can experiment and release original, progressive and distinct electronic music through the internet. The label’s primary objective is to create a personal platform on which unique artist can stand out in the multitude. .contemporary hasn’t got a distinct sound and releases might range from drone and glitch to electro and techno – as long as the music’s unique, individual and sounds great! The .contemporary project is based in Copenhagen, Denmark and is run by Jannick Schou and Mads Fors. The project was founded in 2009. All releases are free and in high-quality. All work (audio tracks, cover, text) is licensed under a creative commons license.

"Not only is this EP the first .contemporary release ever, it’s also Fors’ debut - and what a debut! Originally made 7 months ago, this release has gone through multiply states leading up to this the final result. It’s got all the lovely Fors-trademarks: thunderous electro-basses, catchy melodies and glitched-out beats. A coherent, atmospheric and danceable release, indeed. Download it!"

Boy_ep is Ryu’s first release for dotContemporary and what a label debut! The EP features 7 songs and clocks in at around 30 mins. The EP is a strange (but superb) mixture of avantgarde, electronic, pop and experimental music and there’s a certain playfulness, energy and sparkle to it. In the end, it all comes together in a lovely and charming way that forms a really coherent and vibrant release. We here at dotContemporary think that it’s one of the best releases this year – hands down....

‘Volume one’ is the first .contemporary compilation, and we think that it’s a pretty sweet first appearance. The compilation covers a variety of genres: from electro-madness (Squareshot, Electrostep) and post-IDM (Neon Rose, Inderviduality Music) to dubstep (Dominant Species, Vampires, The Fifth Siren) and drum and bass (Saturn) – heck, there’s even some ambient-greatness (The Sea) thrown in for good measures! Varying genres aside, we still think that it’s a coherent and – in many...

Cylon wrote this: Winter consists of four compositions I made during January and February. Each composition is based around me improvising (hence the titles) with different instruments and a program called gleetchlab. In order to keep the spontaneous and (sometimes) lively vibe of each composition I’ve kept post-production to a minimum – the only thing I’ve done is adding a few field-recordings and mixing and mastering. I hope you enjoy the end result. Composed by Jannick Schou Mastering...

When we asked Matt what Bastard was all about he answered: “This album was born when we were halfway through recording Without End. We had a few songs that we really liked and we didn't know what we were going to do with them. Those tracks were "Cobain featuring Yawning", "Lark", "Honeymoon at the Holocaust Museum" and "DisMIX featuring Cylon". we had no idea what we were going to do with them but we knew we didn't want to throw them away. none of them...

Autumn is the new mini-album/EP by Jannick Schou. It’s a stunning piece of ambient microsound and it flows along in a really pleasant and gorgeous way that really makes you feel like floating. The piece gradually evolves through small and subtle changes in timbre, tonality and dynamic. You’ll hear (what sounds like) melancholic strings fading into uplifting drones and much more! The piece is made using nothing but processed piano and guitar recordings and the overall tone is rather dark....

We hereby bring you 50 minutes of pure noisy brilliance by Kenneth Kirschner. It’s piercing and blaring yet very (!!) beautiful and highly mesmerizing. The pieces are – as stated in the interview below - entirely made out of fields-recordings. Kenneth has remastered the pieces, which means they sound better than ever. This is a release you shouldn’t miss. Download! Composed, Mixed and mastered by Kenneth Kirschner Cover by Jannick Schou

We hereby bring you the second Buzzy Norse single featuring two (new and exclusive) songs entitled “Can’t Wait” and “Order”. ‘Can’t wait’ is a Trentemøller-ish piece of techno/electro incorporating a solid beat and a crispy melody. While ‘Order’ is a longer and more laidback piece of dancefloor madness. We hope you love it because we think it’s superb. Download! Composed by Buzzy Norse Cover and Mastering by Jannick Schou
